PAN African Energy Tanzania Limited (PAET) has started to pump additional gas that will allow Tanzania Electric Supply Company Limited (TANESCO) to generate electricity power to meet emerging demand.

This move comes after the PAET inked down a short-term sales agreement with the Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) and TANESCO for the immediate supply of gas of up to 35 million standard cubic feet per day.

According to the statement issued by Orca Exploration Group yesterday, the first gas flowed through TPDC’s national natural gas infrastructure on 24 December last year and production averaged 20 MMscf/d in the first ten days of operation.
